Kerri-Anne Kennerley was stunned to discover how many Australians recognize her during a guest appearance on The Hundred with Andy Lee on Tuesday.

Daytime TV doyenne, 68, was presented with a sample audience of 100 people who were asked if they knew who she was.

Kerri-Anne was initially nervous about not being recognized, but was relieved when 60 percent of respondents knew her.

“What’s wrong with the other 40?” Kerri-Anne asked, making light of the poll.

Host Andy Lee assured her, “More than half the country knows who you are.”

Funnily enough, one of the 100 Aussies surveyed thought Kerri-Anne was Hollywood actress Goldie Hawn.

A more knowledgeable fan rightly described her as ‘the queen of Australian television’.

Kerri-Anne is best known for hosting the chat show Midday from 1996 to 1998. She also had her own self-titled show, which ran on Nine from 2002 to 2011.

More recently, she was a panelist on Studio 10 from 2018 to 2020 and appeared as a consultant on Celebrity Apprentice in 2015.

It comes after Kerri-Anne sold her mansion in the upscale Sydney suburb of Woollahra for $22 million.

The property, located behind the popular Chiswick restaurant, has a swimming pool, a self-contained studio with an internal lift and a three car garage.

She plans to downsize after the death of her husband, John Kennerley.
